FIFA president Gianni Infantino has spoken about the effectiveness of FIFA World Rankings for the national teams.

“I want to change the rankings system. I want to see a systematic approach, classification, but comparing national teams from different continents is a difficult task.

Probably, the new rankings system can be launched after World Cup 2018,” Infantino announced.
